Default T-Mo says avail online Sept. 6 and at retail stores Sept. 12 ?

Can anyone confirm this? I am already on T-Mo and will get it the sixth if this is true but the guy on the phone did not seem particularly knowledeable.

Also, if anyone can mail me where to get one sooner I'd love to have one before Labor Day weekend so I can learn how to use it before next week. I have a Treo 650 (unlocked) which I like but it's bulky. I'll be new to the BB world and would love to use the long weekend to get aquainted. Thanks all.

I will be at my local store on Sept 12 hoping to get two 8100s. Will the retail boxes come with a case of some kind? When could we expect 3rd part accessories to be available?

The browser still sucks! If this had the e61 browser it would be the shit

My thumbs donby hurt but my pointer finger does from trying to hold this tiny thing in my hand!

Its a nice phone.

BoyG: when you get a call and your phone is in your pocket l. If you make a slight move does your track ball mute the call. What I mean is like the old style blackberry if you move the jog dual down on a call ith high lights end and the ohbe mutes... Seems its done very easy with this trackwheel, kinds sucks!

Default new thread

1) anyone know how to post a new thread?

2) if I knew, I'd ask how I turn color on my 7100g on in email. I have a great screen, but the email shows in B&W. Not useful when I receive emails where people of highlighted comments, changes etc.

I would say at first i thought it was to small. but it takes time to get used to and once you do its amazing.
Only $200 for the phone?!?! That's cheaper than the 8700 and have more stuff on it.

Now I am seriously thinking of getting one when it comes out. But than again, when it comes out, they might end up lowering the price for the 8700.

The only thing I don't like about the 8100 is the keyboard. I type alot on my 7290 so the keyboard on the 8100 may slow me down.

I just wondering if anyone knows this answer or not. It appears the screen on the 8100 is smaller than the 7290 and the 8700.

So I wonder how the web pages will appear on the 8100 screen. Will it look the same as the 7290 and 8700 or will the web pages be more squashed in?

Similar to 7100t and 7105t screens, not the full QWERTY 7290 and 8700g.

Using the holster might help. In your pocket, you're screwed just like having the normal scroll wheel in your pocket I assume.

It was rumored so far $199-$249 with a new contract (most likely 2 years as well)...but who knows until it actually is released.

Can't you lock the device? or does it not lock the trackball?

I just called my tmobile store in SF and they have 1 but they cannot even show it to the public because they don't have any of the release information yet. If companies sell a product before the release date they can get into serious legal trouble. Anyone that thinks they can walk in and buy one before the release date is going to be out of luck.

Definitely. Like I said, we have one, but it cannot be shown to customers. T-Mobile has never been so hard on me demonstrating a phone as much as they are on this one...it's a little too anal. Upper management has been acting like no one has seen this phone yet...and I have customers coming up every day because the entire ****ing world knew months ago that we were getting it. Uggggghhhhhh, just release the damn thing already!

the blackberry messenger is the same thing... only thing is it sends pictures quickly threw it.

nothing really to show on that part.

the trackball takes time getting used to. feels to fast for me but i gota get used to it i think. i dont have a holster mine did not come with it for some reason... im sure they will be available soon.


You can pick up the phone: september 12th at your tmobile store. from my understanding the stores are getting very large numbers..

You do know you can adjust the sensitivity of the trackball right?

so from what im understanding.. the track ball CAN NOT be locked so if its in your pocket and it slides around.. the track ball might activate a call or whatever?

also is smooth? is it greased up or will it get old and start to be a little harder to maneuver around?

and is dust or lint in your pocket gona easily get into the ball or behind it into the phone etc?
